Was The ICC ODI World Cup Trophy Unchanged Since 1975?

All three were held in the United Kingdom, and later, as the sponsor of the tournament changed, so did the design and look of the trophy until 1999, when the ICC took the responsibility in its hands to design the trophy once and for all, and since then, the trophy has been handed over to the winner of each ODI World Cup.
